Walk-to-Beach

Playa Bisanz

The Shana Residences is located within walking distance to two beaches:

  1. Playa Bisanz: a cove beach with small waves, and the best spot for snorkeling in Manuel Antonio.  A ten-minute walk takes you down a rainforest trail to the beach.
  2. Playa Espadilla: the pristine end of the main public beach.  The northwestern end is also called 'Playitas' by the locals, and is the primary surf break in Manuel Antonio.  From here, you can also walk to the more populated end of the beach, as well as the national park.
